The JA Titan of Industry Challenge is a worldwide online competition that begins locally in high-school classrooms. Teams of three or four students use graduate-level computer programs to manage a virtual company, collaborating as they control all aspects of the business, including pricing of goods, production, marketing, research and development, and charitable giving. The repercussions of students' decisions are reflected in regular reports of profit, sales, and market shares. Teams must learn the nuances of competing in a global marketplace to succeed, and the top performing team in each classroom is invited to attend the San Diego County-wide JA Titan of Industry Competition on Friday, December 9th, where they get the chance to win savings bonds, laptops, and an opportunity to compete internationally. It costs the organization $40 for each student to participate in the classroom simulation, including costs for materials and training, and Junior Achievement of San Diego & Imperial Counties would like to sponsor 30 teams of students in the event.
